    Always make sure that you have a supporting block of wood under the work to be drilled to avoid marring the drill press table. This will also prevent splintering as the bit passes through the work.

    The drill press should always be raised to bring the work as close as possible to the drill bit. In this way it is possible to utilize fully the entire length of the drill.
